 WAHOO – An Omaha man has been sentenced for a stabbing that took place last May at Memphis State Lake.

 According to Saunders County Attorney Scott Tingelhoff, Jeremy D. Farber II was sentenced to not less than 60 months, not more than 120 months in jail following his conviction of second degree assault in the Saunders County District Court on Nov. 8.

 On May 23, 2010 at approximately 3:30 a.m., a Saunders County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a stabbing at Memphis State Lake. Following a verbal altercation, Farber assaulted a male victim, who sustained a one-half inch deep wound to his back. 

 According to Saunders County Sheriff Kevin Stukenholtz, Jeff Chvatal, 21, of Waterloo was stabbed after an altercation broke out at a party he and several others were attending at the lake.

 During an altercation between the two men, Chvatal sustained stab wounds that Stukenholtz described as non-life threatening. He was taken to Creighton Medical Center in Omaha for treatment. He was later released from the hospital.

 Farber stabbed Chvatal with a filet knife with a five-inch blade during an argument over beer.

 Farber was originally charged with first-degree assault.

 In a separate incident that occurred at the same time, an Omaha woman was found guilty of third degree assault and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, according to Tingelhoff. Amber Bell paid a total of $550 in fines for the two charges.
